Del Monte Foods, Inc.

Sleepy Eye, MN | Food + Industrial

Overview

ISG worked with Del Monte to plan and design a new processing facility on a strict project timeline.


Opportunity

In order to strengthen operations in southern Minnesota, Del Monte wanted to demolish its existing processing facility to make way for the construction of a new plant that accommodated harvesting season.

Solution

Del Monte Foods looked to ISG for planning assistance in the demolition of its existing food processing facility and the construction of a new 20,400-square-foot plant. The team provided a comprehensive review of the site, which included an analysis of existing traffic patterns, utility layout, stormwater management, and future warehousing requirements. Timing of construction was critical to project success given that canning processes are strictly dependent on the harvesting timeframe of peas. Through strategic coordination with Del Monte’s facility managers and staff, ISG was able to adhere to vital timelines and facilitate the project’s completion on time and under budget.
